Portland Film Festival Presents “Pride Stories” – June 4

“Emmett, Sheya, and S.E. are incredibly talented and inspiring filmmakers, and we are thrilled to showcase their remarkable work here in Portland. Their courage in sharing their unique trans stories is an important contribution to the rich tapestry of our city’s history, especially during Pride month. Their films give visibility to the LGBTQIA2S+ community and hold a mirror to the struggles and triumphs faced by individuals who have been historically overlooked.
